Brussels, Tuesday, 12 December 2017: NATO, the military alliance of 29 trans-atlantic partners, has extended the Norwegian Jens Stoltenberg’s mandate as Secretary-General for a further two years.

The current head of NATO remains in office, as the allies have unanimously extended his term that would otherwise have expired after four years in September of next year.

Holding the position since 1 October 2014, Stoltenberg was expected to take the positive vote of the NATO allies, as already once last week, the federal government of Germany had already spoken out for an extension of his term. Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen and Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel publicly supported to continue to rely on the 58-year-old former head of government.
